with this ball, colby. will it have legs? >> i think it will have an impact. it calls attention to paul ryan, who shares the same view that there should be no exception for rape, abortion in case of rape or anything else, excepthat ryan's principled position gives way to politics and he is willing to buy the mitt romney position that there should be exceptions. think people made up their minds on this issue years ago? >> they have, but it is a matter of getting people out on voting day to the polls. >> we will look back if mitt romney wins and say that the first debate is important as was the first debate in 1960 when john kennedy close to the experience gap between himself richard nixon, who had been vice president for eight years now, he retreated himself as moderate massachusetts mitt and that enabled him to talk to women in suburban areas. as far as richard mourdock is concerned -- i will be blunt, i am a joe donnelly man in that race. i think richard mourdock would be a disaster. what he was stating was a consistent principle. if you believe that god creates every life, then the conditions u
change. paul ryan gave i think quite a good speech on social mobility and poverty earlier in the week. romney gave what was billed as a major speech on the economy, i'm not sure how new it was but they are trying to go big and talk about big issues. the obama campaign i think is going small and even deeper into microtargeting. they have this linda dunham video targeted it to single women. they've got a series of more tightly targeted. they're doing the binders, still doing the binders for women, much more negative stuff. personally i don't know if it will be effective. personally i like the way the romney campaign is try to be more substantive but romney overwhelmingly negative. >> i come back to the walter monday dale race with gary hart. where's the beef. i have heard romney talk about big change, big change. i know he is large bills but i -- know he was big change. this is just, it's just an adjective and a known. as far as paul ryan's speech on poverty, i mean paul ryan's budget, 62% of the cuts in his budget came fro programs for poor people. i think it's wonderful to talk about

"joe biden is partisan but i, paul ryan, know what real bipartisanship is all about." th from the st rhless, relentless, disciplined right wing unified front that i believe the nation has ever seen. this is the person who is saying, "bipartisanship is what we're all about. and you democrats don't understand what that means." >> yeah, but there's, there's one other thing. sometimes you sin by omission. and when the candidates suggest that their plans are going to be sufficient to address the crisis that we are facing, the decit debt crisishat we're cing in eironmenthiche can't afford to tank the economy, they are implying something that's fundamentally false, given what they've told us. president obama is telling us how he's going to get some extra revenue by tax increases. but he's not going to get enough that way. a
in obedience to god. >>> in a major speech on poverty, vice-presidential candidate paul ryan this week praised religious charities, while blasting federal anti-poverty programs, he charged they create what he called a "debilitating culture of dependency." sister simone campbell, leader of the nuns on the bus tour, criticized ryan, a fellow catholic, for wanting to slash federal funding for low-income families. she argued that contradicted church teachings. >>> meanwhile, in an interview with catholic news service, philadelphia archbishop charles chaput said catholics must be loyal to their church not their political party on the issue of abortion. >>> a poll released this week from the public religion research institute found that 60% of catholics think the chur should cus re on social justice and the poor even if that means focusing less on issues like abortion. >>> we conclude today our three-part series on the fast-growing number of american adults, one in five, who say they have no religious affiliation. we've been calling them the nones, n-o-n-e-s, since they essentially answer "none of t
on the campaign trail with just eight precious days before election day. republican paul ryan was in florida. and vice president biden replaced the president at a late day event in ohio. so what impact will the storm have on the final week of the swhatmpt will thetorm have on the final week of the race? to examine that and the state of the campaign, we are joined by susan page, washington bureau chief of "u.s.a. today," and dan balz, chief correspondent of the "washington post." welcome to you both. dan, to you first. what effect is this big storm having on the campaign? >> well, as you've reported, it has shut down campaign activity for the most part. that will continue to be the case at least until wednesday when both campaigns re-evaluate whether it's prudent or proper for either president obama or governor romney to return to the campaign tail. there orati with very little information. we can't know at this point just how devastating the damage might turn out to be. as a result i think both campaigns are being very cautious about what they do other than paying attention to the storm. >>
paul ryan on the ticket. yesterday, the campaign brought a surprise star-- ann romney to the green bay field office to greet volunteers. ( applause ) her husband had cancelled a visit to wisconsin in the wake of sandy, as had president obama, who'd planned to speak at a rally in green bay last night. both turned their efforts to the storm on the east coast. and in green bay, ann romney talked up storm relief. >> this is a time for us to care -- all americans-- to reach out and help others. >> hello, this is marley. i'm calling from organizing for america. >> reporter: of course, democratic volunteers were also working hard at their local office in another part of town. the president, in fact, has more than twice as many field offices in the state as romney more boots on the ground. and the competition for door- knocks and one-on-one contact here is intense. mary ginnebaugh is brown county democratic party chairman. >> we had a huge canvass the last two weekends, knocking on doors, talking with people. we have just been working really hard to identify the people that we know are sort of
